[-] Buyout-Option-Prices too low
« on: April 25, 2019, 10:06:48 AM »
If you lease a plane from AI, you can buy out the plane from the AI broker.

So I make a leasing contract, for example GW2, Bristol Britannia SN 1075, for 5 years.
80k/mo, makes 4,8M. That would make 2.4M in lease cancellation fees.
Now on the other hand, I can make a buyout for a brandnew plane for just 9.7M; including the 2.4M in cancellation fees.
A regular brandnew one would cost 10.7M.

That appears disproportionate to me. Buyouts are a great thing, but in my opinion the cancellation fee should be added to the price of the plane.

When buying out a lease of a plane you always pay the penalty for the remainder of the lease. And then added by AI's true valuation of the aircraft in present age and condition. The new aircraft price is irrelevant in this calculation. 

=> No changes needed.
